I want to welcome one and all to my new author page ~!  Please begin to use this URL from now on.  As for, that’s still mine as well, however I am having it set up to be redirected to  So what do you think?  Drop me a line and let me know!

I’m looking at this as a whole re-invention of myself as an author.  So much has changed recently for me and I want to keep that momentum going and start things fresh and new…or at least I’m going to try.

Also, I'm sure you've noticed Black Satin's new look as well.  Just a minor tweaking but I think you’ll like it and as always there will be news and commentary about my works and the business in general.  Also, I am still actively seeking people to interview, whether you be author, artist or familiar with the business itself.  Let me know and I’ll be happy to send you a list of questions.  This will be a great opportunity for some free promo.

Let’s see what else?  This weekend I will be sending out two VERY SPECIAL requests for interviews from some VIP’s so wish me luck that they’ll accept!  Is there someone you’d like to see interviewed?  Drop me a line and I’ll be happy to check into it.

I’m also now free to do Blog Hops and fact I encourage contact on the subject.  I’ve been very lax on my promo lately and I really want that to change!  Also, I’ll be happy to supply blog posts as well or whatever else you may have going on.

And as always, I’ll keep everyone in the loop about my current writing projects, another thing I’ve been neglecting unfortunately, but life sometimes interrupts.  I’m hoping now that I can get everything on track again.

Oh yes, and doesn’t anyone want to win fabulous prizes???  I have gotten very few comments on my site or blog.  The Memory In Shadow Contest is still going on, however the first quarter will be at an end soon and if I’ve reached 500 books, then the prizes will be automatically given only to those who commented.  Here’s the posting for you again:

One Grand Prize: A FREE COPY of The Sims 3 Plus Pets by EA Games for the PC.  The game is still in its original shrink wrap, has never been opened or played and is retailed at $49.99.  I will need a valid mailing address.  The item will be sent via First Class Mail so please allow time for delivery.  I will pack it reasonably well and for safety but I won’t be responsible for any loss or damages during transit. Sorry. L

Four First Prizes: To be selected randomly five gift certificates from the following stores including:

A $25 gift card to Chili’s
A $25 gift card to Bon Ton
A $10 e-mail gift card to Barnes and Noble
An Amplified Rewards 10-Song Music Download Card

Two Second Prizes: Two commenters will be awarded a free copy of Illusion of Night the first novel in the world of Ordwyn and Inys!

One Third Prize: A free copy of your choice of any of my back list novels, novellas or short stories (Memory In Shadow not included).

Peace and have a fab weekend, all!
